  1. It wont matter, they're still the same
  2. Fc is a revised/updated part, as long as the first 2 sections are the same, it will still fit
  3. The low voltage recorded could be a caused by a high resistance -possibly corrosion- in the loom Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app
  4. Ive had a tonne of injectors pack in - causing the piston to overheat and break apart. Prodomenently on police tranist connects (dont know if they are mapping them and causing it) only seen one or two on non police vehicles. Best thing is to use good fuel and keep on top of the service schedules. Throw in some fuel additive from time to time also Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app
  5. Very unusual fault on a fiesta, The servo does not hold any brake fluid and so cannot be 'leaking' it may leak in to the servo by the master cylinder seal. When out of warranty you dont have a claim as such but if it is recently out of warranty you can complain to ford and get some or all of the cost covered under goodwill Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app
  6. What engine is it? Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app
  7. No problem :) Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app
  8. Glow plugs are just there to heat the combustion chamber to aid starting and will only be active for a very short period of time. If it is a glow plug fault I would be checking resistance from the battery to the plugs. You might find a high resistance or open circuit, if not then check all your earth straps, 1 on the gearbox at the mount and a few on the body. When it does run does it lurch under heavy acceleration? Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app
  9. Haha, wouldnt hold out too much hope but theirs a few honest guys :p Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app
  10. Its doubtful that you will need to I just feel that because your paying for the oil you should get the whole bottle :p Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app
  11. It should be, you can always request that they definately use it to make sure. Its a 5ltr bottle we get which doesnt all get used so I nirmally leave the excess in the boot foe top ups (you could ask them to do that too) Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app
  12. The oil we get for those services is castrol edge professional 5w20 which is green in colour , ive not seen any other companies supply this oil Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app
  13. Looks like a short circuit after the switch Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app
  14. You'll be fine with 17" - wont rub as long as they are not excessively wide Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app
  15. Clockwise both sides. Remember to spray around the piston with some wd40 (so you dont rip the rubber) Sent from my GT-I9505 using Ford OC mobile app
